Edvard Munch's “The Scream” was last traded for 120 million dollars, making it one of the most expensive paintings in the world - and it is presumably one of the most popular paintings, as a signet of the “Scream” horror films. In this filmic portrait by Dheeraj Akolkar (“Liv & Ingmar”, NFL 2012), the painter is given a voice: “I am less interested in an analysis than in the artistic act of creation.” The film approaches Munch's personality via his works, of which he created several hundred throughout his 60 active years. Munch had close connections to Germany after first exhibiting in Berlin in 1892, and he lived and worked there for a while. It was during this time that he painted “The Scream”, which provides such an oppressive and ever impressive depiction of the emotional state of the early 20. century.
